For­mer Stoke striker joins Silk­men

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town have made another per­ma­nent sign­ing af­ter tri­al­ist John Mars­den signed a con­tract with the club.

The 22-year-old striker has been on trial with the Silk­men ever since the game against Kids­grove last month, and scored one of the goals dur­ing the 7-1 tri­umph over Con­gle­ton.

He could fea­ture for Mac­cles­field dur­ing this week­end’s home match with Welling, and he’s glad to fi­nally put pen to pa­per on a deal.

It’s great to get it done and be given the op­por­tu­nity to play and prove my­self, it’s good to get it all over the line,” he said.

“I played last sea­son in the Con­fer­ence and when we played against Mac­cles­field they were a great, tough side and dif­fi­cult op­po­nents to play against and a good foot­balling team as well, so as soon as the op­por­tu­nity came I jumped at it.

“I see my­self scor­ing goals in this team, it’s a good at­tack­ing side with great abil­ity and I be­lieve if I get the chance I’ll put the ball in the back of the net.”

Mars­den’s most pro­lific sea­son was at Stock­port Sports from 2012 to 2013 where he scored 21 goals in 31 matches. Since then he has been at Stoke City, Shrews­bury Town, South­port and Lin­coln City over the past few years.
